The San Francisco 49ers will be limping in with a few injuries on the roster also. Here is the official injury report for their team:

Out LB Chris Borland (ankle), CB Tramaine Brock (hamstring), RB Carlos Hyde (ankle), WR Stevie Johnson (knee)

Questionable LB Ahmad Brooks (thumb), WR Michael Crabtree (knee), T Anthony Davis (concussion), RB Frank Gore (concussion), S Raymond Ventrone (groin), LB Michael Wilhoite (hip)

Probable CB Perrish Cox (ankle), CB Chris Culliver (knee), DT Quinton Dial (knee), DE Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot), T Jonathan Martin (illness), C Marcus Martin (knee), LS Kyle Nelson (back), DE Justin Smith (back)

The 49ers will miss their rookie stud LB Chris Borland. He is out for the season with an ankle injury and has been placed on the IT. He will be a candidate for rookie of the year. He played in 11 games this season and had 84 tackles and a sack. He also added 2 interceptions during the season. The 49ers will miss the young playmaker from their defense for the final 2 games of  the season.

The biggest question mark for the 49ers this season has been the play of Colin Kaepernick. His production has dropped and it has left his team out of the playoffs. He has 3051 yards passing this season with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. This is the first season that he has hit double digits in interceptions during a season. He has been sacked 49 times this season already. He has not been able to run like he has in the past. He has 425 yards running this season and has not found the end zone running the ball. He had 4 touchdowns running last season and 5 touchdowns running in his first season as the starter. Teams have been able to keep him in check in the run game. The Chargers will have to find a way to do the same.

The 49ers have lost 3 straight game. Two of those games were against the Seattle Seahawks and the other game was against the Oakland Raiders. If the Raiders can beat them, then we should be able to do the same. Our last 2 opponents of the season are against the only teams that the Raiders have won against this season.
